It is that time of the year again! One of my very favorite things to do at the end of every year is go through my analytics and pick out the top 10 posts that I added to my website for the year. I love to see what posts you (my readers) seem to enjoy the most. Helps me to evaluate the content that I create. Some of these posts surprise me but others just make sense with how 2020 unfolded!
Top 10 Posts Of 2020
This is not a surprise to me at all…what else did we have to do during 2020 besides finding a great series to binge watch? For 2020 I am presented my list a bit different. Instead of focusing just on Netlfix, I shared 20 Binge Worthy Series found on any network or streaming channel! A huge hit with my returning and new visitors!
Of course this would be one of the top posts in 2020! During this time of social distancing I found wanting that connection with my girlfriends even more. This post shares some great ideas for a virtual girls night. All of these ideas will allow you to laugh, connect and have fun – which is something we all needed in 2020!
This post was super therapeutic to share with you all but also put me way outside of my comfort zone. After seeing the pageviews tick on this one, it was clear it was a subject that needed to be shared and discussed! This is a bit of a different article for me to write and I sat on how to present it for weeks but decided I had to share this because dang it…we all deserve to feel what I feel after having my first Boudoir session. While these photos make me incredibly proud and amazing, this is a very personal share for me. I appreciate your professional and kind responses as you read through this article.
I had the opportunity to work on a project for a newly released Family Cookbook Recipe Journal. Our recipes preserve memories of food, family and friendship. This Family Cookbook Recipe Journal is a blank recipe journal perfect for a family keepsake to collect all of your favorite recipes. Along with sharing this great gift idea, I shared a family recipe that is delicious! Spaghetti Pie! Spaghetti Pie is a favorite in my family. A traditional spaghetti night with a twist. Spaghetti in a pie dish, baked to perfection!
After I shared the reasons every woman needs a boudoir session, it was clear that this discussion needed to go further! I followed up my initial boudoir article with a second one all about what to expect because I know that I was wondering what I was walking into as I booked my first session. It is completely normal to have some anxiety over what to expect when going to your Boudoir photo session, but what helps is going into the session with some idea of what to expect!
YUM! I must admit, this was a delicious recipe to recreate and it tastes just like the real thing! One of my very favorite dishes at Cracker Barrel is the Hashbrown Casserole. I decided to try my own version of this family favorite and I think I mastered this dish, lucky for you, it is pretty easy too! I love trying copycat recipes and this yummy Copycat Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole is one you must taste!
I think this was a top read in 2020 because we all found ourselves at home more often. The kids are stir crazy, school is in session at home, the kitchen is in use non-stop and the weekly chores are becoming more like daily chores with the pandemic lifestyle. To keep the kids invested in their own space and on track with chores I decided to use this Printable Chore Chart and Reward Bucks. Might as well use this time to create some new habits and find Age Appropriate Chores.
I am so happy that others did this memento with their family. 2020 was different everyone but something we do not want to forget either. Create a Lockdown Handprint Keepsake Craft with your family. An easy but perfect way to do some creating with the family and take time to remember where we were during this unprecedented time in our lives.
2020 gave us all a little extra time. Finding fun movies on TV was something the kids and I have been enjoying. Let your kids experience some of your favorite family movies from the 80’s and 90’s. Listed are 30 Family Movies You Grew Up Watching! Fun family favorites that will make you and your kids laugh through this crazy season of life.
Another yummy copycat recipe that turned out amazing and obviously is a favorite in other homes! This Copycat Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad is a family favorite. My mom and I both love getting this salad when going to Applebee’s so I decided to try to recreate this delicious and filling recipe. This salad is made with Crispy Fried Chicken, Cabbage, Romaine, Sliced Almonds, Carrot, and Crunchy Chow Mein and tossed in a flavorful homemade Oriental Dressing.
